The Boomers face their toughest test yet at the 2019 Basketball World Cup taking on world no.2 Spain in a mouth-watering semi-final. Check out The Roar’s handy guide to live streaming the match online, or catching it on TV.

Tip-off for the semi-final will be at 6pm (AEST) on Friday, September 13, with the game being played at Beijing’s Wukesong Arena.

With the USA knocked out of the tournament in the quarter-finals, the title race has been thrown wide open. Australia have emerged victorious in ever game they’ve played so far, but will find the going a lot tougher against a Spain side who, in America’s absence, are arguably the tournament favourites.

NBA stars on show tonight include Toronto’s Marc Gasol, Phoenix’s Ricky Rubio, Charlotte’s Willy Hernangomez Geuer and Denver’s Juancho Hernangomez.

The Boomers, of course, boast San Antonio’s Patty Mills, Cleveland’s Matthew Dellavedova, Utah’s Joe Ingles and Phoenix’s Aron Baynes – as well as former Golden State Warrior Andrew Bogut.
